Kim, who started the final round tied for the lead, squandered the chance to win in regulation when he bogeyed the last hole, missing a six-foot par putt.

He carded 70 to tie with Taylor, who birdied the last for a 68,on 12-under-par 276 at Redstone.

Taylor, who needed to win to qualify for this week's US Masters in his hometown of Augusta, made a mess of the first play-off hole, the par-four 18th, where Kim won with a par.

South African Charl Schwartzel (67) and Canadian Graham DeLaet (68) finished one stroke behind, tied for third. Padraig Harrington disastrous final round of five-over 77 left him in a tie for 40th place.
